A flowering dogwood tree will be planted in the David A Howe Library front lawn

If you had the pleasure of knowing Penny Canfield, then you will understand what a tribute the event planned for Friday April 28 is to her. Her family is thrilled that her favorite place in Wellsville, the David A. Howe Library, will host the annual Arbor Day tree planting ceremony and honor Penny’s memory.
The Canfield’s welcome all friends, family, library lovers, and tree huggers to stop by the library lawn at 1:30pm this Friday. Mayor Randy Shayler will be in attendance along with a contingent of school children who will participate in the annual ceremony. Penny was a reading teacher in Wellsville for many years.
The tree being planted on the front lawn of the David A. Howe will be a “Flowering Dogwood,” a widely loved flowering tree is native to western New York. The blooms are a real show in the spring and the tree also makes an encore performance in the autumn. Penny also was a native western New Yorker and this choice in trees to plant is an ideal memorial.
